The video clip of the Frost-Hardy Palm Trachycarpus princeps in Habitat

Canarius | Thursday May 6th, 2010 |

These are marvelous images from a place in China called “The Stone Gate”, in the habitat of the cold resistant Trachycarpus princeps – a palm species with silvery fan leaves. This video was published in 2008 by Stéphane Ringot, with the original name of “Voyage au Pays des Trachycarpus Princeps“: Trip to the land of T. princeps.

The video shows:

  • The trip by boat and the walk through the forest.
  • Adult, tall palms growing on the vertical cliffs, in full sun, with no soil.
  • Seedlings, juveniles in the shade of the forest
  • Beautiful vistas from the cliff.

Trachycarpus princeps is a new species of palm which is hardy to frost and cold conditions in Europe.

Canarius.com is now offering seedlings with palmate leaves in the shop: Trachycarpus princeps
